You will quickly discover that the characters are highly compelling and well detailed. These two authors have woven a wonderful tapestry in these characters; you will find yourself as elated as they are in their collective victories and as heartbroken in their setbacks.
Contained within these pages are Dragonlances core characters that are quite memorable, well after you've finished this fine trilogy and as history as proven, will inspire several Dragonlance novels to follow.
Tanis Half-Elven - Who is the leader of the companions. He is torn between his love for two women.
Sturm Brightblade - Knight of Solamnia. Squire and Knight whose mission in life is to bring honor back to this stoic group of knights.
Goldmoon - Chieftan's Daughter of the Barbarian Plainsmen. Along with Riverwind, her tribal outcast lover and husband, who are both on a quest for truth.
Riverwind - Lover and later husband of Goldmoon, whose sole mission in life is to guard Goldmoon.
Raistlin - Simply stated, the most alluring character of the whole Dragonlance series. He is a Mage of astounding power and brother of Caramon.Read more ›
This world, these stories, and these characters are by far some of the most detailed, realistic and true to life characters- even if you have never met a dwarf. By reading the first few chapters alone, the descriptive powers of these two amazing authors make you feel like you've known the characters, their entire races' histories, and you can almost FEEL the tension in the air when the characters are in danger. A truly amazing read indeed, second only to Tolkien's works but only because Tolkien was more influential and came first.
Think elves are little midgits who make toys? Don't know your dragons from your wyverns? Well this is a great place to start learning about the wonderful world of fantasy literature. You couldn't pick a better, easier to understand, yet complex story that is ultimately about human nature's frailty and it's wavering between good and evil, yet still holding much sway in the universe. Go buy this. Now.
However, I bought all three books individually, and I paid half again as much as you'd pay getting this boxed set. This is a great bargain, and frankly you don't often see very good discounts on fantasy paperbacks.
I recommend all three of these novels, and the Twins Trilogy, and the Raistlin Chronicles. You are far better off buying the boxed set here than buying the books indivudually. The books won't disappoint, and the price can't be beat.
I have to disagree with the comparisons to Tolkien's work. There are certain plot elements that are essential for any type of fantasy work, but you can't argue against the fact that the basic plotlines of these two trilogies are totally different: one is searching for something to help with a problem, the other has already found something and seeks destroy it in order to remedy the problems it brings. Maybe the reviewers just see simple similarities, such as larger parties being split, but that's something that happens in a lot of fantasies in order to keep it from becoming stagnant. Whether the authors may or may not have had inspiration from Tolkien, the story really is their own.
Anyway, this is an incredibly solid story that's about more than just dragons and swords. I recommend this to anyone looking for good books that stir the emotions. However, you may need to be over a certain age and have experienced certain events to really appreciate it. Go and read it!
